The Boston Bruins' first line has gotten off to a great start this season. And that continued on Monday night against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
In the first period with the Bruins already up 1-0, Brad Marchand was able to net a nifty goal. On the play, he batted a puck that David Pastrnak had tipped into the air into the back of the net.
Here's a look at the play from Marchand that extended his point streak to a career-high 13 games and Pastrnak's to 12.

Marchand would later return the favor to Pastrnak. He gave Pastrnak a cross-ice feed four and a half minutes into the second period and Pastrnak converted to light the lamp for the Bruins. It was Pastrnak's 14th goal of the season, which leads the NHL.
When things are going right, they're certainly going right. And that has been the case so far this season for the Bruins' Perfection Line.
The trio of Marchand, Pastrnak, and Patrice Bergeron had combined for 64 points before Monday night's game. Comparatively, the rest of the Bruins' team combined had 57 points. Their scoring output has been so strong and the unit has done a lot to get the Bruins off to a great start this year.
